Location: Madisonville, Louisiana
Welcome to the Freedom Boat Club of Madisonville, LA.
Being one of the oldest communities in Louisiana, Madisonville is a flavorful gumbo of all the great things southeast Louisiana has to offer. Originally named "Cokie", from the French word Coquille meaning shell, the town's name was changed in 1811 to honor President James Madison.
Because of its position on the Tchefuncte River, the town's history has always been shaped by water. As a result of this rich history, the town has eight sites listed on the National Historic Register. The dwellings on the register range in architecture from Greek revival to Creole cottage. Be sure to get a glimpse of these historic structures during your visit.
The Tchefuncte is one of the most scenic rivers in the state. With its moss-draped cypress and oak lined banks, an afternoon cruise will bring you such delight that it will almost be sinful. Watch carefully for the Ospreys and Bald Eagles as they search over the saw grass for prey.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you and the staff at Freedom Boat Club for your professionalism and outstanding service. Our experience has far exceded our expectations and your hard work and dedication are a big reason for that. Having owned a boat before I appreciate the many perks the club has to offer and appreciate the hassle-free boating. Please feel free to use me as a reference anytime. I would be more than happy to share my experience with anyone who may be interested in the club.

Thanks for a great day on the water. Mike was so helpful, from showing me the boat to helping me load it up, giving me maps of the area, letting me know places to go and what to avoid. A great experience.

Kellie & Keith,
I just wanted to say thanks for all the help getting started with our membership.
Jarod/Kellie are great- very friendly and helpful... our experience at the dock coming home and leaving was fantastic- we even got help getting stuff on and off the boats.
Pretty much a home run- I froze the 8 year olds but other than that- it was great!
